      The Great Wall of China, Angkor Wat, and the Grand Canyon....these are on my short list of must-do travel destinations that actually live up to all of the hype. If you've only got a day, visit the ... read more
      South Rim, leaving your car behind in Mather Village and taking the free park shuttle buses to viewpoints and hiking trails along the rim. For more offbeat adventures, go to the North Rim (accessible via Utah, nearby Zion & Bryce Canyon National Parks), which gets only 10% of the annual park visitors.

      If you've got limited time, focus on the South Rim, which has the most easily accessible sights, hotels, restaurants, transport, etc. I'd recommend not taking a helicopter tour - they're noisy, they pollute and ultimately they're not as wonderful of an experience as hiking the park's trails and taking photos from scenic viewpoints on the canyon rim.

      Terribly easy, but breath-taking walkway along the rim of the Grand Canyon. Not a strenuous hike by any means, but good thing as you need all your energy for photography!

      I'm sure you'll be doing more than just a helicopter tour and the Rim Trail is just about the most accessible (and most beautiful) attraction in the park. In addition to the walkway along the Rim itself, there are several trails that descend from the Rim Trail down into the canyon. These offer adventures ranging from short day hikes to overnight outings, camping at the bottom of the canyon and back.

      Hi Rupal,

      I highly recommend staying at one of the hotels within the national park, right along the south rim. Just the experience of sleeping alongside the rim of the Canyon is an exciting endeavor. Plus, you'll be close to everywhere you need to be - trails, guides, restaurants and more.
